    hello,am sorry about the pains u are having.the scan results shows u have fibroid.this could account for the pain and possibly cause excessive menstrual flow and abdominal swelling.the management is usually individualized based on the patient involved and whether she has completed her family and of course based on her age.who ordered the test?a gynecologist?if no,I will advice u see one.u may or may not need surgery based on the factors I av mentioned above.u will be counselled and helped to make the best choice.wishing u good luck.A GYNAECOLOGIST(that is not after money only) IS YOUR BEST SHOT.I will advice u get treated at a teaching hospital of federal medical centre.good luck once again.
